LITERATURE | Rochester Jewish Book Festival 

Beginning this week, the JCC Lane Dworkin Jewish Book Festival celebrates 22 years. The annual celebration of Jewish literature and culture will take place Sunday, November 2, through Sunday, November 16, and features such authors as Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, Ari Shavit, Nora Rubel, Wendy Kout, and Oliver Horovitz, among others.

The two-week series of events kicks off on Sunday at 7 p.m., with an opening night reception featuring Telushkin. Following events feature authors who will discuss their works, which range in theme from Abrahamic religions to adopting a sugar-free diet. Tickets for these events vary in price and are available through or by calling 461-2000. Events take place at Rochester Jewish Community Center (1200 Edgewood Avenue), unless otherwise stated.
